Liquid D and K
Liquid D and K, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a unique great tasting liquid supplying significant amounts of vitamins K1 and K2 as well as vitamin D3 to support bone and cardiovascular health.
A growing body of literature supports the concept that increased intake of vitamin K both from food as well as supplements can have a beneficial impact on bone and cardiovascular health. † While the term “vitamin K” may imply a single molecule, vitamin K is actually a group of similar molecular forms including K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone).
Vitamin K1 is the most abundant form of vitamin K in the diet and is most often found in green vegetables such as spinach, lettuce and broccoli. Often this source of vitamin K is difficult to obtain in sufficient amounts from the diet, as the molecule can be bound tightly to the chloroplast membrane in the plant.
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. Though classified as a vitamin, vitamin D is actually a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism.
Vitamin D helps to facilitate calcium absorption and transport. Vitamin D can increase the expression of osteocalcin and other important compounds from osteoblasts to help support bone formation; it can also help to break down bone and mobilize calcium to other tissues in the body.
Liquid D and K may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily intake of the nutritionally important vitamins D and K.
